ChicagoVPS has a long history in the Low End Box market serving customers for many years and has been featured a bunch of times, having first been posted on Low End Box on October 16, 2010!  The ChicagoVPS brand manager, Nick, is also an administrator, and an active user, on Low End Talk. ChicagoVPS, despite their name, actually offers service in Chicago, Dallas, Buffalo, and Los Angeles. Backups are available for an extra cost, just submit a ticket in their customer Portal. Lastly, our OpenVZ plans may have issues supporting docker along with some newest OS’s so please plan to use KVM for that until our OVZ 7 migrations are completed along with some other infrastructure upgrades.

  1. I have been with chicagovps since 2013 and at first they were pretty bad. I won’t lie. They suffered from the same overselling and resource bottlenecks all of these other hosts on LEB suffer from on the daily. Outages, slow IO, billing issues, the works.

    As the years went by the service got better. Support was good and consistent, technical support was competent and very clear and tickets were answered pretty fast. Network, IO, Uptime all were massively improved. 1Gbps was the new norm (no longer 100Mbps).

    Right now the hardware/server/network quality is great and stable. It has been this way for the last while. Billing tickets take forever to get handled, but other types of tickets get handled within 24h.

    You pay a bit more than other providers on LEB, but you get peace of mind that your server won’t just up and vanish or go down on you. I should have logged all the downtimes to have a more factual proof of my claims, but I guess I just have my word now.

    Their new site design also gets a plus as it’s all laid out clear and much easier to navigate than the old design was.

    Lastly, I am fairly sure they support QEMU, TUN/TAP and even mail services if you make a ticket about it and don’t abuse it.

    Pros:
    – Not oversold
    – Good IO
    – All but billing tickets handled in < 24hrs
    – Site design
    – Lots of bandwidth
    – Still running after so many years
    – Nick still exists
    – Good network

    Cons:
    – Sometimes support feels outsourced
    – Billing tickets are lost in cyberspace
    – Pricier than other similar service, but not by much

    If you appreciate my input, which I try to leave on all LEB CVPS posts and keep up to date, please click my username prior to purchasing. <3

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
